>> armed with volumes of information taken from inside of a terrorist net. after taking out osama bin laden, the united states gaining momentum. i am harris faulkner and we are live as fox reports tonight. never before seen images showing how osama bin laden lived within his secret compound . watching himself on television, rehearsing terror messages and plotting more attacks. tonight, fox reports on the surprising information u.s. intelligence just learned about the late terror master mind. plus, this u.s. navy seal earned the military's highest decoration following his death in afghanistan . now his memory lives on. tonight, the heroic story of
lieutenant michael murphy. also, new murder charges in the killing of an american border patrol agent and one lawmaker asking if a government sting operation is somehow connected to his death. breaking news in the death of osama bin laden, videos and documents seized from his compound in pakistan, now being released. a senior u.s. intelligence official said the material is the biggest batch ever recovered in the fight against terror. fox news showing the still photographs only . no audio provided, fox news would not have aired it anyway. they don't air video propaganda from terrorist. this is the image that bin laden wanted to present. a sinist are terror king pin and neatly groomed with concerned with his appearance and his beard died black to
make himself look younger. look at the flip side of bin laden. his beard is treeked with gray and wrapped in a blanket as he watches news coverage of himself on television. the intelligence described his compound as a command and control center from qaddafi . far from being a figure head. bin laden was actively plotting attacks against america. our correspondant has the latest in washington. >> thank you, harris. the briefing today was historic and described as the biggest intelligence pick up in history. computer hard ware and documents and audio and videotape . a senior intelligence official telling us that bin laden remains an active leader in qaddafi and providing stradgic
and tactical with the group. he was far from a figure head and an active player making the operation essential for our nation's security. it was described as a command center and focused on mass casulty attacks in the united states, harris. >> what else are we learning about the videos? >> there are hundreds of hours was audio and video to be analyzed by multiintelligence task force and the most triking comes from a camio video and bin laden is watching images of himself. we don't know if it is live tv or taped. but a senior intelligence official said the bin laden beard is gray. compared with the other images. these are propaganda videos and you can see bin laden's beard is black . senior intelligence officials say bin laden jealously
guarded his image and active in the propaganda for the network terror. >> the story is coming together hour by hour . more dehow the cia identified bin laden. >> harris, we learned there are three pillars. a woman in the compound visually identified him for the u.s. navy seals there. and second from facial recognition photos. they were transmitted back to washington and they had exact matches for the size of his eyes and distance across the bridge of the noise and ears. many people don't realizelet ears are as unique with the fingerprints. that was a 95 percent match and dna was done, we were told that the chances of it being
someone else was one in five million. that is important because that means it is impossible. >> very interesting. katherine harris, we'll see you later in the hour. >> thank you. >> for more on the breaking story we'll bring in chad sweet. he is the former chief of staff for michael chertoff and co-founder in the chertoff group and security firm. chad, good to see you. the big question is the new information a game changer? >> the jury is still out. looking at the fact that the department of the homeland security hasn't moved to elevate our homeland security alert status. they have two switches want one elevated and the other iminant. more than a week of evaluating the data, they have not moved to the elevated status, suggest that while the
information is valuable, and most likely will be helping us to unravele plots abroad, on the homeland front it doesn't appear that they have identified an actuv plot in the united states. >> there was a talk of trains being targetine with that not specific enough. the national terrorism advisory system which changed from the prior system. it only has two switches . there was an alert sent out to law enforcement and at a lower level. there was not a specific plot against transportation, but that was not sufficient to reach the elevated threat level. if you go back and look at the war against hitler, for example, we broke the code and that was huge and had great successes against want german. it is yet to be determined if
this cache of intelligence will yield the same results. >> we are telling the world that we have does that put it at risk. a senior u.s. intelligence official saying too much. >> he's doing it in a calculated way. if you think about it, david letterman when he was blackmailed, he came out and preempted the black mailer on national television . in this case, we have intelligence that osama bin laden pretaped a video in the event he was killed it would be played after his death. the u.s. say we don't care that we are playing multiple videos from you. you are dead and we care about qaddafi, and two, we did kill him. this is a savvy move on the part of the intelligence committee and obama to put the
conspiracy theory to rest. >> you say it is simple and more than one president takes credit? >> not only in washington, you have to have a game of only one side can get credit. intelligence works takes years and years to do. and pebble by pebble . at the end of the day both presidents deserve credit and this was a long process and it stretched across multiple administrations . if i could borrow a phrase from the former senator from texas. president bush put osama bin laden in the cross hairs and it was president obama that pull would the trigger . it sends an ambigous message to the. whether you are in a hole or compound we'll seek you out and bring you to justice. >> chad sweet, joining us for perspective on the breaking news thank you very much, chad.
and the u.s. is trying to figure out what pakistan knew about osama bin laden's where abouts. their government does not prevent the u.s. raid that killed the qaddafi leader. they're denying the reports that the intelligence chiefs stepped down . let's go to that part of the world. dominic is streaming lich from isllama badment >> pressure is ramping up on the pakistanies both internationally and domestically. you are talking about a lawmaker putting pressure on the pakistan government. the former foreign minister, wants to see the heads roll . that might be part of a bitter argument he's having with them . all of the same, his voice carries weight and also
carrying weight is calls for the public for the heads of the intelligence services here. they believe it is a major failure on his part and disgraced the nation and protest in the country, we believe that extremist organizing a massive thing rally in isllama bad. that is destabling the country that is suffering from internal and exterm problems. there is public disagreement with what the politicians should be doing with the american drone strike and creating a destabilizinguation here. on top of that we expect to hear in the next 48 hours details of what osama bin laden's widow is telling the secret services. she was left behind after the raid and they have been interrogating her and getting
an idea of what day-to-day life was . how osama bin laden was able to maintain control tactical and stradgic control. >> interesting, they are angry that their government didn't stop the killing of a terrorist. we are learning new details about president obama's visit to fort campbell, kentucky. he met with the team that took part in the raid in pakistan. thanking them for take out osama bin laden. the seals were not singled out. the president doesn't know who they're. they have a canine member as well, a specially trained dog met the president, too. >> dick cheney and a fox news exclusive. he's speaking out how the obama administration handled the mission to get osama bin laden. we have the former
vice-president and his own words next. >> a suspicious passenger with large packages prompting police to close down a train station . what he was doing that caught their attention, stay close . this is the neighborhood. you get elm street and you get main street. thank you. and that just the first quarter. so you want a slide in your office ? or monkey bars, either one. more small businesses choose verizon wireless than any other wireless carrier. where's susie ? is she expecting you ? because they know the small business with the best technology rules.
>> at this hour, authorities questioning a man that had authoritis and commuters in dallas on alert for most of the afternoon. the situation began with reports of that man traveling through mass transit train. he was carrying two very large packages and paying fellow passengers at several stations to load and unload those packages. police took him in to custody and called the bomb squad. the contents of what he was carrying was not yet revealed. >> he was one of the bush administration outspoken
figures in the fight against qaddafi. former vice-president cheney has plenty to say on the death of osama bin laden. leaders are voicing reaction as they learn about his life in pakistan and the raid that ended it molly? >> harris, in an exclusive poll the former vice-president praised the president's call to send forces in the compound and also indicating a reservation. >> you have to give him a lot of credit for making the team to conduct the raid that got bin laden. no question that was his responsibility and i think he handled it well. i still am concerned about the fact that the techniques that we had used to keep the country safe for seven years is no longer available and v taken off of the table. >> speaking about water boarding which president obama
banned shortly after taking office. mrs. obama spoke about the raid in the university of northern iowa and trying to encourage graduates to give back to the community, she said the navy seals showed the essence of the word service. >> small group of brave men dropped by helicopter, half a world away in the dead of night, into unknown danger inside of the lair of the most wanted man in the world. they did not hes -- hesitate . risking everything us and for our freedom and security. and today, in the republican's weekly radio address massachusetts senator scott brown said bin laden's death shows that other terrorist that those who harm or threaten the american people will be dealt with on our terms however long it takes. harris. >> molly, thank you very much.
